A small variegated trailing ivy perhaps?

Evening all. Good heavens, think I'm first. Verdun didn't make it over the Channel, the strawberries are still there!

Wonderful Deano. I hope you enjoy eating it. I love my fresh veg. When I see your photos I'm always amazed at the neatness of everything. Did you find that photo of a weed you said you'd send me?

Could well be a sunflower, looked on Google.

GG - have just read through some posts and saw you were going to spread stinky manure and alarm bells rang! If manure is well rotted and ready for the garden it should NOT smell. If it smells it isn't rotted enough.

Going to lunch with friends today. Weeding a little gravel bed first. Sounds easy, but it's got ivy, brambles and goose grass in it. And the honeysuckle on the pillar at the side of the stone steps has rooted in it.

Def. not a courgette! The way the bud is reminds me of a China Aster, which is an annual, but it's years since I've grown them.

Hard to follow Verdun on that sad note.

It's been so hot today 34° and still 31° at 9.30 this evening. We found OH's old air conditioner  and set it up in the bedroom. It was 27° in there. But I won't be able to sleep with it on, it's so noisy.

Veg is coming thick and fast from the garden now. Cucumber and tomatoes at lunch time, runner beans, carrots and potatoes this evening and raspberries. Strawberries tomorrow, but we are out to lunch with friends so it will have to be in the evening.

Lovely, I like Blue Boa. What is that golden plant next to it?

GG, the veg garden was manured and it's watered so it grows lovely weeds.

No rain here. 34° forecast. Leeks need weeding badly before they disappear all together, but they are in the sun. I got up late as catching up on the very bad night before, slept like a log, but late as OH didn't go to bed until nearly 1am.
